I don't see one for a Subaru, but enough people request it, it could happen. This would be the perfect solution for running a "Lincoln" locker.
I plan to e-mail them about making one.

Have you looked into making one for Subaru vehicles? Specifically 80's to early 90's models. These cars are lightweight, long-lasting and inexpensive to obtain making them excellent to tow around. More importantly, alot of these cars are 4WD. There is an increasing number of people who modify and off-road them. Very few after-market suppiers make products for these vehicles. One of the most effective modifications to these is welding the spider gears in the rearend (a "Lincoln Locker") . This modification is permanent and can have serious driveability and reliability issues when driven repeatedly on the street. An axle disconnect like you sell for similar vehicles could be used to "free up" the rearend of a modified Subaru on the street, then locked in for off-road. Myself as well as an increasing number of Subaru enthusiasts would be VERY interested in such a product.
Please give this some consideration. It would greatly and safely enhance the off-road capability of 4WD Subarus as well as making both 2WD and 4WD models able to be towed behind motorhomes.
I'll let you know the response.

I'd bet they become price prohibitive to the average Cheap-Skate Subaru Owner. If it was more than $100.00, I'd continue to swap axles in and out.

If such a product becomes available for Subarus, it's mine.
